Thanks guys! I should mention too these were sharpened by Mark if I am not mistaken...highly polished convex bevels...My brother "bought" the blue ctek handled one and told me it cuts like obsidian...these things are freakishly sharp.

Tim, those are awesome. I might need to commission one with a simpler wood, maybe just maple, in the coming months.

They can be found here, but currently out of stock:

Awesome handles, perhaps the coolest i've seen so far... especially the pine cones model! Do you know if you'll make another batch in a near future? I'll jump on one of these that's for sure 😀

Both Gopher and I have been doing handles for the Goko knives. If Brian aka gopher is not up for a reahndle I can do one. Send me an email.
There is one of these knives with no handle left. https://www.chefknivestogo.com/gowh1nohagy2.html
I also have some pine cone ..or can get some more if you want a certain color.

I'm still arguing and fighting with 2017, and it isn't easing up any.

Ahh that sucks Brian, I hope you can get back to your shop soon.

Hi Dejedi, I cant do any trades at the moment.

I just took one of the Goko stock knives but converted it into a Wa shape handle. I have a set of crazy pine cone scales...email me if you would like to see a pic of them.
